Faith by Lyn Cote
DescriptionThe Civil War battlefield is the last place Quakeress Faith Cathwell thought she’d find herself. But with a gift for nursing, Faith seizes this opportunity to join the fight for abolition―and to search for Shiloh, a freeborn childhood friend who was kidnapped and sold south by unscrupulous slave catchers.
Knowing it’s much too dangerous for her to search enemy territory alone, Faith enlists the help of Colonel Devlin Knight, who is indebted to her for saving his cousin’s life. A career soldier, Dev is committed to the preservation of the Union but conflicted about freeing his own slave and confidant, who plans to enlist as soon as Dev gives him manumission papers.
Blazing a trail east with the rest of Grant’s army, Dev and Faith fight their personal battles―and a growing attraction to each other. When beliefs clash and passions flare, they quickly find that the only thing more dangerous than the war surrounding them is the battle within their hearts.
Faith Cathwell is what I would call a determined woman. As she did her job as a nurse in the Civil War, she was really looking for her kidnaped and freed friend who was a woman of color. Which was a very dangerous situation for anyone, much less a woman. Faith did ask for help from Cournal Devlin Knight and the two of them determine to find Shiloh, as dangerous as it may be.
This book is a journey of struggles and difficulties and Faith and Delvin continue to find Shiloh. I did enjoy these two character and the rest of the cast in this book. At the story unfolds, I enjoyed seeing the characters come to life more and grow into people that were believable and like real. Lyn Coye does her job well as she combines the lives of these two, and writes a story of love and forgiveness. And even though Faith and Devlin were looking for a friend, they found more than they ever though they would find. Read this book to find out the ending of their story.
